Fresh from an all day workshop, our diverse and talented selection of 16-17 year olds showcase new ways of getting more young people engaged in politics. News UK, The Advertising Association and The Ideas Foundation have set out to change this situation and at the same time make the case for including a much wider range of people in our media industry. Only 39% of 18-24 year olds voted in the last General Election and so this age group has less of a voice than it could have in major political decisions.
